Sound Magic has introduced Neo Transient, described as “a new concept for level independent dynamic processing”.
Here’s what they have to say about Neo Transient:
Unlike common compressors and limiters, Neo Transient reacts on Transients – those short peaks in the audio signal – rather than the overall signal loudness level. In this way, Neo Transient creates an entirely new way to process your tracks.
Neo Transient allows you to completely reshape the attack and sustain characteristics of a sound. You can shorten or lengthen the attack of all kinds of percussive signals, such as the bass drum, snare drums, toms, congas and so on, to give them more impact, change them to a punchier sound. Or go the other direction and make those sounds gentler than before.By boosting the attack period of a sound, such as a bass drum, the mix can be made to sound more transparent. Instruments can be mixed at lower volume while still maintaining their positions in the mix without costing needed headroom. By boosting the sustain stage of the sound, you can emphasize the ambiences and reverb-tails of the sound.
Neo Transient offers two entirely different sets of detection algorithms.These two algorithms have different sounds and will provide you more choices on the final sound it shapes. Parametric controls in Neo Transient are arranged in a easy to understand, musical manner. Neo Transient is a “must have” for processing your percussive signals while recording, mixing or mastering.
- Two Innovative algorithms, One for level independent dynamic processing , One for peak dependent processing.
- Parametric controls are arranged in a easy to understand, musical manner.
- Adjustable Delay for look forward processing
- Built-in A/B Compare function enables you to compare different settings
- Up to 32Bit/384KHz resolution
Neo Transient is available now for €49.00. For details and demos, see the Sound Magic site.
